Recipe: Leo’s Scrambled Tofu
Post written by Leo Babauta.
As many of you know, I’m vegan, and I’m also into eating real foods whenever possible. So one of my favorite dishes is scrambled tofu. It can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner. In fact, sometimes I’ll eat it three meals in a row.
I don’t make this every week but it’s a great dish.
Here’s the recipe:
- Dice onions and/or a few cloves of garlic. Either or both. Saute in large stir-fry pan, in a few tablespoons of olive oil.
- Drain a package of firm tofu. Press it until it’s fairly dry. Break up and put into the onions/garlic, mixing and breaking all of it up with your spoon or spatula. It doesn’t have to be broken into tiny pieces — it’ll happen as you cook. Cook on medium-high.
- Chop a ton of other veggies. Good choices include: spinach, mushrooms, zucchini, grated carrots, tomatoes, broccoli, bell peppers. Really, any veggies you have on hand. Toss them into the pan and stir-fry with the tofu.
- Season with tamari (or soy sauce), nutritional yeast, sea salt, black pepper, tumeric. To taste, until you say, “Aw hell yeah.”
Takes less than 10 minutes to prepare.
Serve with roasted potatoes, or some fluffy quinoa, or just by itself. Also good in a sandwich or wrap.
